Would you recommend Outward Bound Adventures - OBA, Inc.?

I have recently become familiar with OBA, but I am very impressed with the program. OBA strives to provide numerous opportunities for several young men and women who may be surrounded by negative elements. Through OBA's efforts, these students are introduced to different aspects of life. For instance, the students take wilderness trips that put them in touch with nature. I truly believe that I would have benefited from an opportunity as such as a growing young man. Programs like these are essential for impressionable teenagers so that they can build character and develop positive habits.
